Hyundai has introduced a new hot modification – the 2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N. The rival for the Skoda Octavia RS will debut in a few days at the Paris Motor Show.
The N variant got the same powertrain as a performance i30 hatchback. Under the hood there is a 2.0-liter petrol turbocharged V4, which produces 250 hp and 353 Nm of torque (378 Nm in overboost mode).
The motor is mated with front-wheel drive and six-speed manual transmission with an automatic throttling function when switched “down”.
A sports Performance Package is offered for the car to increase output to 275 hp, as well as an electronic-controlled limited slip differential, an active exhaust system, more powerful brakes and 19-inch wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires.
The standard Hyundai i30 Fastback N accelerates to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds (6.1 seconds with sports package). The top speed is 250 km/h.
The performance fastback has five modes of control electronics, a fully disconnected stabilization system and a multimedia system that can display power, torque, boost pressure, longitudinal and lateral acceleration on the screen in real time.
The i30 N hatch accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds. It made its debut last year. Same time Hyundai announced that future hot models would be all-wheel drive. Testing of such cars prototypes has already started.
